Here we provide reliable information regarding the newest vehicular restrictions from the Deputy Director of Traffic, the National Emergency Commission, and the Ministry of Public Works and Transportation.
One main change is that, from Monday to Friday, on a day when you can drive in a canton with an orange alert, you can’t drive in a canton with a yellow alert. This is meant to more or less keep people in the canton where they live and prevent displacement from cantons with more covid-19 transmissions to those with fewer transmissions.
Circulation hours will be from 5 am to 9 pm from Monday to Friday and 5 am to 7 pm on weekends, in all cantons. On weekends, those with odd number plates can circulate on Saturdays and those with even number plates on Sundays, in all cantons.
There are some main routes exempt from the vehicular restrictions. There are also additional exemptions. Those with proof of reservations at hotels or Airbnbs, freelance workers, farmers traveling to buy feed, those going to a vehicle technical review, and those transferring minors to a babysitter will be exempt from the vehicle restriction but must have written proof.
